Med students have some obvious appeal. I mean, right off to bat you know this:
Pros: 1) In a few years his pockets will be deep enough for your gold digging. 2) He beat out a lot of premeds to actually become a med student, which means the guy is either: 2A) Hard-working or 2B) Smart or 2C) Some combinaton. Either is a good thing. 3) Doctors get more respect than lawyers. You will have more respect by association. You’ll be not only a lawyer, but a doctor’s wife! 4) He’ll understand your professional lawyer or law student life, since he’s a professional too. 5) You’re bound to get “Oh, what a smart/intelligent/powerful couple” comments.
But I’m here to warn you, ladies, to beware the med student. I might be working with a sample size of 1, but it was a horrible sample.
The pants: Okay… So I probably should have realised that because there were about 20 of them left in the sale, in every size, and they’d been marked down to 12 freaking yos, they were not a wise buy. My boyfriend said they looked like they’d be in the background of an MC Hammer video. I tried them on and he took that back and said they were lovely, but only time will tell if I have the courage to actually wear them in public. Loving the description, “drapey pant” lol http://www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk/kimchi-+amp-blue-drapey-pant/invt/5123465544778/&bklist=icat,5,shop,sale,salechristmasw,wbottomsnew
Finally, the boots: I picked them up and went from “These are the fugliest freaking things I’ve ever seen” to “I MUST HAVE THEM NOW AND CAN I WEAR THEM OUT OF THE SHOP PLEASE?” in about three seconds. I did not wear them out of the shop, however (I miss being a kid and being allowed to do that. It was such a treat!). Unfortunately, I can’t find them on the website. They have a verrrry chunky heel, a gunmetal buckle and strap that goes around the ankle, otherwise they’re plain black leather. They look ‘sturdy’. I really liked them cos they look like they could be vintage, that they could have began their life as boots in the 70s, 80s or 90s, and that hopefully that timelessness will mean that I’ll get a few decades’ wear out of them myself. What with my cropped hair and boyish demeanour I made sure they weren’t too lesbatronic before I bought them (not cos there’s anything wrong with that, just cos I really need to be a bit more girly in how I dress). Office don’t allow exchanges on sale items so no going back now!
Even with all that splurging, I still have almost €25 left on my voucher to go so let’s wait and see what I come home next. I’m thinking sequins……..
i was trying to contact you before, but I think you could not send me a message back, because i did not have an account.
Now i have =)
i'm the dutch girl, from omelge. Dont know if you remember me?
Hope you are doing okay!
Hello! Of course I remember :) I did answer you a while back but it comes up as from ‘Anonymous’, so you mightn’t have seen it, it’s way back on my tumblr somewhere:
"Hello! So nice to hear from you :D
Hope your New Year’s celebrations went well, my hangover today was enough to show me it’s going to be a good year! It was nice to have such a lazy day, when are you back to work?
I’m so glad you set up an account, you have to start posting stuff up on your page :D
How’s work in Lisbon going?
Got an EXTREMELY generous €100 voucher for the biggest shopping centre in Ireland from my very kind uncle/godfather. Going to spend it tomorrow, any ideas what I should buy with it? Should I splurge on one big lovely thing or buy lots of little lovely things? What would you do with 100 yos?
Second class of Bikram yoga today, only had to sit down for fear of fainting once (huge improvement from 7/8 times the first day). Had a really cheery instructor today, he kept calling me a Caoimhín (which means Kevin) but I let that slide cos he was such a pet really. Didn’t need a nap afterwards this time either! Delighted with myself, maybe 2011 will be the year I finally get my act together :)
Can’t wait to go back tomorrow, and hopefully keep it up at least 4 times a week til the end of the month. Then, we’ll see if I can afford the full membership rates :/
If anyone is thinking of starting it I’d definitely recommend it, you feel so accomplished or something. And all that sweating has to be good for you, right?
My friend just called me a tosser cos of something I said on facebook and now I feel like shit. I was having such a good day, and I was going to go to bed early so I could get up early to study but I couldn’t stop thinking about it and was having trouble sleeping. I wish I didn’t care what people thought about me, I had to delete it all cos I kept thinking about people’s opinion of me plummeting. I’m sorry for this stupid rant but I couldn’t help myself.
I wish I wasn’t so fucking emotional. Fuck fuck fuck.
I went out last night with the boyf and cos it was just the two of us I didn’t bring a camera. It was killing me. I think I’m gonna have to pluck up my courage and start taking my SLR with me on nights out, I’m missing too many amazing shots. I just have to control myself (i.e. don’t get fall-over-drunk) so that I don’t run the risk of breaking it and ruining my life. I’d like to think I can trust myself not.
I cant find where to add notes to your blaubear theme arghhh! so frustating!, nice pic the one with the no swimming sign XD
Oops sorry! Too technically challenged to fix that problem for you :) It seems to come up that you liked it on the notes though? Thanks so much, I’m lucky to live in an extremely photogenic place! Feel free to reblog any of my images, makes me smile to know somebody’s enjoying them! x
